This map illustrates satellite-detected damaged structures over Tuikhingzang town, Tonzang township, Chin Division, Myanmar. After a reported landslide induced dam that ruptured on 28 August 2015, UNITAR-UNOSAT analyzed imagery collected by the Pleiades satellite on 16 September 2015 and identified an area severely affected by a mudslide. Wide agricultural areas appear affected and the town of Tuikhingzang is partially covered by mud. UNOSAT identified a total of 141 destroyed structures and 48 severely damaged structures in the area. Local roads are also affected and a bridge has been completely destroyed. In addition two IDP settlements are visible 1 and 3 km northeast of the town and a total of 260 possible tent shelters were identified. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
